As Muslims across the country celebrate another Eid-el-Kabir, a member of Lagos State House of Assembly, Hon. Gbolahan Yishawu, representing Eti-Osa constituency 02 has appealed to the people to celebrate with caution amid Covid-19.
In a statement made available by his media office, Yishawu celebrates with Muslim faithfuls, most especially his constituents, saying this year’s celebration should be a season to call on Allah to heal Nigeria and the nations of the world from the unseen virus that has claimed the lives of people.
The lawmaker, who is also the Chairman House Committee on Budget and Economic Planning said, ‘I want to appeal to our people to be cautious while celebrating Sallah. We should have it in mind that Covid-19 is still with us.
He went on: “We must strictly adhere to Covid-19 guidelines by maintaining social distancing, the use of facemasks and constant washing of hands. Doing this will make the virus disappear from our society” .
The lawmaker therefore used the opportunity to pray for quick recovery for the people that are still in the isolation centres.
“I want to wish Lagosians and my constituents Eid Mubarak. May Allah strengthen us to submit to His wish and command at all times. Amin.”, he added.
